Howdy Neighbor! Are ya hungry?
What happens when a bunch of friends and neighbors decide to
share seeds, land, tools, labor and resources?
Fire up the barbecue because we've got more zucchini than we know what to do with!
Using friendship-based community organizing and principles of gift economies and mutual aid, Food Not Lawns has been turning yards into gardens and neighborhoods into communities since 1999.
Collectively, we've got THOUSANDS of examples of beautiful, lush, and beneficial organic community gardens that started out as toxic, wasteful lawns.
We're a friendly lot, down to earth and willing to get dirty.
We organize local seed swaps, garden work parties, study groups, and all sorts of grassroots opportunities to make friends while learning more about how growing food in the front yard can improve your home, your community, and your life.
Be one of us! Start a local Food Not Lawns chapter!
You'll get free support and garden advice from the organic farming and permaculture experts that started this movement, and your community will get to have a hub from which they can share resources and find support for their garden projects and more.
